The pedigree of Johnnie Walker includes many foundation sires, both directly and indirectly. Sire Zapatero is developing into an excellent breeding stallion. His son Fernando V won the silver medal at the World Championships for 6-year-olds in Lanaken last year and other offspring like Dyango VDL, Datero H and Zapzerap perform successfully at international level as well. Through Zapatero, the bloodlines of both Chin Chin and Ircolando were added to the pedigree of Johnnie Walker.

Further back in the pedigree of Johnnie Walker is the ‘Stallion of the Century’ - Nimmerdor.

Johnnie Walker’s dam Elia was awarded ‘Elite’ and earned a score of 80 points in the KWPN mare test. For technique and willingness she received an 8.5, while her scope was given a 9. Grand dam Rianca received the ‘Prestatie’ predicate, due to numerous offspring jumping at 1.30m-level or higher. Additionally, great-grand dam Bianca produced the world-famous show jumper Liberty, who competed at the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000, and the Grand Prix-show jumpers Gravutell and Ocana. Bianca also anchored the performance blood of many international show jumpers, such as the well-known Baileys of Michel Hendrix, a current member of the Dutch Olympic squad.
